Yep...I agree with you there.  Again, this is just a RUMOR that I've heard
from some fat-tire heads on the net...

Thanks for the info.  Some people on this list seemed to think that my
question was a bad joke and flamed me for it.  I'll bet they didn't know
that, in addition to Audi, BMW, Aston Martin, Lotus, and, of course, Peugeot
all make or slap their names onto bicycles.  Some even attach
automobile-like price tags to their machines...
